Using the Internet to Plan Your Next Steps After High School









Using the Internet to Plan Your Next Steps After High School

Advisors, counselors, teachers, and your family can be great resources as you make decisions about your future after high school. Whether it’s choosing a major, narrowing your college choices, preparing for admission tests, or financing your education, there’s a lot to learn as you make these big decisions. We asked some of the school system’s counselors and graduation coaches to share their favorite online resources for you and your parents to review.

Find the resources that work best for you and use them as you make plans for the future. A must-visit site is www.gacollege411.com. This one-stop site gives students access to a wealth of information about preparing for college, exploring options in Georgia, applying for postsecondary study, and pursuing financial aid.

When you’re thinking about available college-planning resources, don’t forget The Choice Book that you received your freshman year. It includes planning worksheets for each year of high school that you can use as you’re putting together college applications and résumés.
